CombiMatrix Introduces CustomArray 4X2K™ Line of Microarrays
Product News Sep 02, 2005
Acacia Research Corporation has announced that its CombiMatrix group has expanded its product line to include the CustomArray™4X2K™.
This product contains four independent 2000-feature microarrays on a single CustomArray.
As with all CustomArray products, the 4X2K is designed to offer complete array customization, user control of probe design, and the ability to modify microarray design.
Acacia claims that, it delivers high sensitivity and throughput for gene discovery, pathway research, and molecular characterization of disease.
"The DNA-array market has various segments," said Michael Tognotti, Vice President of Sales and Marketing of CombiMatrix.
"One is a segment where customers desire low-cost arrays and do not need a large number of features per array. The 4X2K, with four 2000-feature microarrays per semiconductor chip, is ideally suited to that segment.”
“This new product maintains CombiMatrix's margins, which is based on price per semiconductor chip, but greatly reduces research costs for customers, which is based on price per microarray.”
“This is an excellent addition to our product line and a great complement to the CustomArray 12K used by customers who desire more features."
